Otto Luis Ludwig Moritz ABRAMOWSKI, Medical Doctor, Mildura, Victoria

Otto Louis Moritz ABRAMOWSKI was born about 1852 at Österode, Ost Prüßen, Prüßen (East Prussia, Prussia). The town of Osterode, on Lake Drewenz, was 75 miles by rail northeast of Thorn, and at the junction of lines to Memel, Elbing and Schonsee, towards Konigsburg. Osterode had a castle built by the Teutonic knights in 1270, to whom the town owed its birth. Osterode is now called Ostróda, in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship of northeastern Poland.
Abramowski was a graduate of both the Universities of Konigsburg and Berlin and had been a medical doctor since graduation. Abramowski had spent eight years as a surgeon in the Prussian and German Army, including service in the Franco-Prussian War. He arrived in Australia in 1884, and went up from Adelaide to Terowie, South Australia. His wife Martha Dorothea Miranda née WECKWARTH (1857 -1891) came with him from Prüßen (Prussia), with their older children, Rolf Abramowski and Nora Rosalie Miranda Abramowski. Their daughter Christel Eva Clara Abramowski was born on the 26th December 1885 at Terowie, South Australia. Abramowski swore the oath for his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation while working as a Medical Doctor in Terowie, on the 13th August 1886. Terowie, South Australia.
In about 1887 the Abramowskis immigrated from Terowie up the Murray River to Mildura, Victoria, where Doctor Abramowski practised for about twenty years. The last two of their five children, the twins, Martha Miranda Dorothea Abramowski 1891 and Otto Luis Ludwig Abramowski 1891 were born in Mildura, Victoria. His ideas on diet were ahead of the times, and he showed somthing of this mindset when he took out Australian copyrights for a book entitled 'Eating For Health' see Dietary Reformers - in Mildura on 28 September 1907. His wife sadly died at age 34 in Mildura after the birth of the twins on the 26th March 1891. Doctor Abramowski remarried in the Murray-Darling River Junction town of Wentworth, New South Wales in 1894 to Caroline Pauline Antonie Helene ZEMBSCH, and their son Hermann Otto Waldemar Ambramowski was born in 1895 in Mildura, Victoria. After the Federation of Australia two more children were born in Mildura, Victoria: Alixa Helena Valeska 1905; and Olaf Werner Moritz Abramowski in 1907. Doctor Abramowski continued for many years serving the people of Mildura, but eventually he moved to Melbourne where he died in Elsternwick, near Caulfield, Victoria on the 14th December 1910. His German-born son, Rolf Abramowski, is recorded as having ask special permission of the Home and Territories Department to enter Australia in 1925. His second wife Caroline Pauline Antonie Helene Abramowski died at age 65 in 1932 in Mildura, Victora. Tragically, their son, Friedrich Abramowski, then of Ballarat, died in late January 1910 in the miasmic and primitive conditions experienced by the Tanami Gold Prospecting Party in The Tanami Desert of the Northern Territory in the summer of 1910. The circumstances of his death nevertheless illustrate an intrepid attitude inherent in the Abramowski's purpose. The humanely thoughtful rejection of all persecution deriving from the considerate and anti-chauvinistic mentality of the Abramowski household is well illustrated below by this open letter by Dr. Abramowski's son, Hermann Otto Waldemar Abramowski, as published in the Melbourne 'Argus' on Saturday 3rd April 1915 : - '
Sir, I note that it is proposed in Great Britian to give a badge disclosing the fact to all those who have volunteered but failed to pass the medical test. I should like to suggest the distributing of "active service" badges to all those who have been mobilised for special duty since the outbreak of war. There are hundreds of young fellows who, I though unable to enlist, have done the next
best thing, and answered the call to duty for such work as patrolling the coasts, &c., at the various forts, and have done their work well, and they ought to be spared the indignity of being declared to have "cold feet" when in reality they have done all in their power and what they have been asked to do. Praise of course they do not ask for, as duty is duty, but it would in make a difference it they could show something when asked pointedly "What have you done for your country?" - Yours &c., H. ABRAMOWSKI, A.S.C. Trainee. Caulfield, March 31[1915].

His Capital enthusiasm for things Australian and the Abrecht's Australian nationalism is celebrated in the remarkable litany of the childrens names:

In 1909 Robert Friedrich Abrecht was an importer, his son, Hermann, a diamond setter, and the Abrechts lived at No. 12 Grandview Grove, Auburn, Hawthorn. Still, when the age came to the needle of Enemy Alien times, R. F. Abrecht, a jeweller, of 329 Little Collins Street, Melbourne, was suspected and accused by the fabulously and darkly-named informer, E. Grimm, of the crime of dealing with the enemy - by getting precious stones from Austria, and the Official Australian Censor and the Comptroller-General of the Australian Department of Trade and Customs were notified by official correspondence from the Attorney-General with a sense of gathering importance in the still young Commonwealth of Australia in Confidential Memorandums, to be on alert, an alert to which they readily agreed, for gemstone importations, postal or otherwise, ready to catch Abrecht out in any such dangerous enemy transaction.

Franzis Heinrich ALDENDORFF
On the 30th of March 1883 when Franz Heinrich Aldendorff made his 'Alien's Memorial' for Naturalisation as a 'British' Australian it displayed a surprisingly keen sense of his purpose, cause and priority, for it was just four days after he had arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia. Aldendorff, who had arrived in Australia on the steamer "MARSALA" declared that he was an Upholsterer by trade, born in the village of Wolbeck, nr Münster, Westphalen, Prüßen, now Western Germany.
His German-born & wed wife, was Catherine SCHMIDT, who produced: 1. Gertrude Luise Marie Aldendorff, born 7th June 1884 at Goodwood, Adelaide, South Australia - died 4th May 1883 Stepney, Adelaide, SA.
Altendorff was in Melbourne, Victoria by the mid eighteen-eighties for he and Catherine had a child, Richard Francis ALDENDORFF in 1889 in Prahran, Victoria. Richard Franz ALDENDORFF was married to Beatrice Ellen HERING in South Africa. Died 1947 South Africa.

It seems likely that a kinsman, Carl Aldendorff, joined him in Melbourne, where Carl married Catherine Whelan in 1891. But the brothers do not show up after Federation in 1901 on the Australian Electoral Rolls.

Though, there is a Frank ALDEN, iron turner, living at 102 Charles Street, Footscray, and a Charles ALDEN, engineer, living at 80 Charles Stret, Footscray listed in the Roll for 1919, so it seems that they have gone to ground as Germans, playing for invisibility from persecution as 'Enemy Aliens' under an Anglo-circumcised hybrid version of their name. Maybe not.

An Aldendorff family member was known to be an inventive technician and innovative craftsman. It seems likely, they are related, but it is unclear what relationship they might have to the Charlotte Aldendorff who in 1927-1928 took out multiple Australia patents for 'Improvements in electro-mechanically controlled telephone and remote switching systems and switching apparatus' but it seems the Aldendorffs were on their way to a mobile phone.

The Aldendorffs emigrated to South Africa, where Gertrude and Franz Richard are known to have died. But what became of Franz Aldendorff is unknown.[ ALTENDORFF]

Carl ALDENDORFF -from Hamburg, married Catherine WHELAN 1891 Vic. - IN July 1892 at age 56 C. Aldendorff left Melbourne on the ship 'HOHENSTAUFEN' bound for Southhampton via Ports.

The AXNICK family, other than husband and father Carl, a Bootmaker, arrived from Hamburg in the Port of Melbourne on the ship 'SORRENTO' in October 1882 listed under the name ASSMEK. The AXNICK Family then consisted of Carl Andreas,(then about 34) who presumably came out ahead of his wife, Auguste Christiane Luise Wildfang (28); daughters Marie Auguste Axnick (6) and Luise Mathilde Ida Axnick (4), and son Carl Joachim Peter Friedrich Franz Axnick (18 mnths). Their second son Albert Axnick was born in 1883, in Fitzroy, Victoria, and he later trained to be a baker.
Carl Andreas originated in Östprüßen (east Prussia) as seen above, but his wife was born in Schonberg, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, then a State within the Nord-Deutscher Bund. The family later were in Fitzroy in 1903, but later, before the outbreak of the European War, they moved adjacent to the inland waterway of the Fishing-Fleet basin on the Esplanade West, Port Melbourne, where Port Phillip Bay fishing was always on option to top up a thin stream of income.
